Throw a Retro Sweet Birthday Bash

I thought you might enjoy a sweet compilation
of birthday ideas and inspiration
perhaps you are planing a special b-day party soon
and like myself are terrified of endless arcade games
and giant houses filled with air
and children screaming in delight at the top of their lungs
to the point of your ear drums exploding?
Does the idea of a backyard barbeque with adult interaction
and a chance to show off your creative spirit
and make all the other moms blush and applaud
your martha stewart you can do it attitude!
make you feel giddy and excited?
ME too!
Well I don't have little ones
so maybe I'm being a tad overzealous
of how much energy moms really have
but I know you gals have what it takes!!!
because after-all it's the blogging creative world
that I retrieve my inspiration from!

Loving ideas from ~
"Kate's Fairy Garden Birthday Party" - The TomKat Studio
"How to Throw a Super Fun, Super Cheap Event" - Babble.com
"Kendy's Big First Birthday... Party!" - Karli of Retro Plants

If your like every other mom out there
you probably have oodles of pictures of everyone else
but none of you! Make sure you change that!
Nothing's more sad that a scrapbook missing mommas face
after all, someday when you are looking back through memory lane
with your children they are going to want to see mom too -
yes even those embarrassing haircuts and spandex pants
once the energy comes back
but before the next round of birthday bashes come around
make the memories last
and to insure that all your hard work is not quickly forgotten
document the special day!
That is why I am so excited about my new kit

Here I am on my 7th birthday
gosh I remember going and seeing Beauty and the Beast in Theaters
the ball room scene where the room seems to spin still enchants me
visit my blog for my scrap pages using my new kit
and for all the digi kit sources

Enjoy a couple more retro sweet digi pages
